Question about 2003 Ford Explorer
Where was the flat? If the flat was on the Front end, the Spare may be bad or the Lugbolts are loose. If the front hit something hard enough to blow a tire, there could be related front damage. But a nail would not damage the frontend, just the tire.
You should check the E brakeshoes, but really there is a possibility the E brakes would have messed up once they were used. The parts back there could be rusty anyway and would not reset if the E brakes were off. Sounds like the neighbor did a favor and did right by setting the E brake when jacking the Vehicle.
There may be extra noise if the Spare was hung back under the vehicle. As the tire is flat it will not tuck in tight without air in it.
